The Honeymoon is Over

I am in my second year teaching at the same school. I love my students and I love being a teacher, but the tide is changing. My administration has started weekly “walk-throughs” in our classes. They claim they aren’t “gotchas,” yet they are tracking the data. I always do my best in the classroom, but today I was having a bad day. Of course my assistant principal walked through took some notes and walked out. I kind of resent this weekly drive by. I think they should focus on the teachers who are doing a shitty job every day. I find it demoralizing to have an administrator in my classroom once a week. I am grateful to have a job, but I totally understand why so many new teachers don’t stick around and quit within the first 5 years of teaching.

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

This piece of garbage, right here, should be prosecuted for this.
